Take Action

The Nature Conservancy's Design for a Living World exhibition asks us to think about the products we use — where they come from, how they are made and the impacts they have on our planet.

For the exhibition, 10 designers created new objects from sustainable materials sourced from around the world. Wood, plants, wool and other organic materials were transformed into intriguing objects, revealing extraordinary stories about regeneration and the human connection to the earth's lands and waters.

The Exhibition

The Design for a Living World exhibition will be at the Desert Botanical Garden from January 16-April 1, 2012. Click here for Desert Botanical Garden directions, hours, admissions and more.
